    Second Arrest Made In Police Officer's Death

    Victim Shot Behind High School

    UPDATED: 6:40 pm EST November 9, 2007

    BOSTON -- A second man has been charged in connection with the death of a Revere police officer, who was shot behind the city's high school in September.
    Robert Iacoviello, 20, of Revere, was scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday for the Sept. 29 slaying of Officer Daniel Talbot. Iacoviello has been held since the morning of Oct. 1 on weapons charges and a probation violation unrelated to the homicide investigation. He's the second person to be charged in Talbot's death. Derek Lodie was charged as an accessory before the fact.
    "On the day Officer Talbot was shot, I promised that my office would follow the facts wherever they led us. I promised that we would apply the law to hold accountable the individuals responsible for his death, whoever they might be. Today, 40 days later, we are delivering on that promise. We are not done yet, and much work remains to be done, but we are moving ever closer to finding justice for Daniel Talbot," District Attorney Dan Conley said.
    Officials said that on the night of his death, Talbot, his fiancee and three other members of the Revere Police Department left Margarita's, a Revere bar, and proceeded to the bleachers in the rear of the high school, where they continued to drink beer and socialize.
    Lodie was cutting through the field when he happened upon the officers. Officials said that Talbot and his party exchanged words during a confrontation with Lodie, who left the scene through a hole in a nearby fence. Lodie is accused of calling Iacoviello and orchestrating the confrontation that would follow.
    Police said that they have evidence that suggests Talbot and Officer William Soto began to approach Lodie when Iacoviello and two other young men arrived at the scene. Iacoviello was allegedly armed with a 9 mm handgun.
    Iacoviello is accused of shooting Talbot in the head. Soto discharged his weapon in response, but Iacoviello, Lodie and their associates fled the scene, officials said.
    Officials said that there is no credible evidence that Talbot or any other member of his group was engaged in any illicit activity behind the high school beyond the infraction of drinking in public.

    Suspect In Cop Shooting Due In Court

    Teen Facing Charges In Off-Duty Slaying


    Video: Teen Accused In Slaying Of Revere Officer Due In Court

    CHELSEA, Mass. -- A 20-year-old man accused of shooting and killing an off-duty Revere police officer is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning.

    NewsCenter 5's Gail Huff reported that police believe Robert Iacoviello Jr. is a member of the Bloods street gang.

    He was arrested last December by the police officer he's now accused of killing.
    Iacoviello will be in court to face murder charges.

    Iacoviello is accused of killing Revere police Officer Dan Talbot behind the high school on Sept. 29.

    Talbot was drinking with several other off-duty policemen when a confrontation broke out between them and a teen identified as Derek Lodie, 17.

    It turned deadly when Lodie called several friends to join him and, according to the district attorney, Iacoviello showed up with two other men.

    After a heated exchange, Iacoviello allegedly produced his weapon and fired.

    Talbot was shot in the head.

    Source: Accused had no idea it was cop

    Revere shooting ‘All went down too fast,’

    Robert Iacoviello Jr., 20, appears in court yesterday for his arraignment in the Sept. 29 shooting death of off-duty Revere police officer Daniel Talbot.

    Investigators do not believe that the teen who allegedly lured Revere police officer Daniel Talbot to his death or the accused killer the youth enlisted to do the shooting realized they were executing a cop, a law enforcement source said.
    “It all went down too fast,” the source told the Herald yesterday after Robert Iacoviello Jr., 20, of Revere pleaded not guilty to shooting Talbot, 30, in the head on Sept. 29. He remains in custody.
    Disturbing new details in the tragedy continue to emerge. Talbot, who was off duty but had his service weapon with him, grabbed for his sidearm after he was mortally wounded, only to crumple to the ground, according to an incident report filed by state police Detective Steven McDonald.

    More than 30 Revere Police officers attended yesterday’s arraignment.

    Assistant Suffolk District Attorney Edmond Zabin said Talbot, his fiancee, Constance Bethell, and officers William Soto and Stacey Bruzzese, after hitting a local bar, had gone behind Revere High School about 1:30 a.m. on Sept. 29 and “were socializing and had brought a couple beers.”
    Zabin said “they were only there a short time” when a homeless youth, Derek Lodie, 17, walked by the officers and overhead something that he “apparently took offense to.”
    Lodie continued on his way, but returned and began arguing with the friends. Zabin said Lodie was “taunting and yelling at officer Talbot.” Quarreling, Talbot followed Lodie to a parking lot, unaware he was being drawn into an ambush, Zabin said.
    Allegedly summoned by Lodie by cell phone, the 5-foot, 3-inch Iacoviello was approaching in the same parking lot with two other males, “drew a semiautomatic pistol and opened fire,” Zabin said.
    Afterward, Zabin said, Iacoviello “engaged others to destroy evidence and clothes, including the murder weapon,” which was disassembled and scattered in storm drains in Revere.
    After recovering pieces of the weapon, state police matched the 9 mm handgun to the bullet that killed Talbot.
    Among the evidence police have recovered is a red shirt Iacoviello allegedly wore, which had been set on fire, the source said.
    Talbot and Iacoviello, a reputed gangbanger, had crossed paths before. Talbot, who served on an anti-gang unit, had arrested him in December for drug possession.
    “My client did not shoot Daniel Talbot,” said Iacoviello’s attorney, Peter Krupp.
    Talbot’s mother hung up on a reporter.
    A search of Iacoviello’s home on Oct. 1, based on information from a police informant, reaped a Ruger 9 mm handgun unrelated to Talbot’s murder and 14 rounds of ammunition.
    Jean Leuci, an acquaintance of Iacoviello’s family, said, “Who are the Revere police to go behind the high school with their guns, off duty?”
    Lodie has been in jail since last month, when he was charged as an accessory before the fact of murder. He pleaded not guilty.

    Third Arrest Made In Revere Officer Shooting Death

    REVERE (WBZ) ― A third arrest has been made in the shooting death of a Revere police officer.

    Gia Nagy, of Revere, was arrested and charged with being an accessory to murder after the fact in the shooting death of Officer Daniel Talbot on Sept. 29.

    Nagy will be arraigned Monday in Chelsea District Court.

    Robert Iacoviello Junior, 20, was arrrested in November in connection with the case and has since pleaded not guilty to the murder.

    His attorney, Peter Krupp, says Iacoviello did not shoot Officer Talbot and accuses police of intimidating witnesses in their rush to make an arrest.

    "In the aftermath, we saw an investigation marred by speculation with the police barging into people's houses without a warrant, knocking down doors and intimidating witnesses," Krupp said.

    Iacoviello was the second person to be charged in Talbot's killing, joining 17-year-old Derek Lodie, who has pleaded not guilty to being an accessory to murder.

    Prosecutors say Talbot and three other police officers were drinking beer and socializing in the bleachers at the Revere High School athletic field when Lodie exchanged angry words with the officers.

    Lodie then allegedly called Iacoviello, who is accused of shooting Talbot in the head.

    There has been some question about whether the three officers who were drinking with Talbot at Revere High School will be disciplined.

    Officials said officers are generally disciplined when they engage in activity that is in violation of the law and disciplinary action is possible in this case, though it's unknown what action will be taken.

    The Grand Jury investigation into the shooting is still at work. The District Attorney said by the time the investigation is over, there could be more arrests in the case.


    It's unclear what role Nagy played after the murder.

    REVERE (WBZ) ― A teen charged as an accessory in the September killing of a Revere police officer has pleaded not guilty during her arraignment in Chelsea District Court Monday.
    Prosecutors say Gia Nagy, 17, of Revere, helped her boyfriend Robert Iacoviello Jr., 20, break the gun used in the shooting death Officer Daniel Talbot and hide it in a storm drain. Prosecutors also say Nagy helped fabricate an alibi for Iacoviello.

    Iacoviello was arrested in November in connection with the case and has since pleaded not guilty to the murder.

    A fourth person has been added to the list of suspects in the September shooting death of Officer Daniel Talbot.

    James Heang, 17, was indicted by the Suffolk County grand jury along with 17-year-olds Derek Lodie and Gia Nagy, and 20-year-old Robert Iacoviello. Heang is charged as an accessory to murder in addition to unlawfully carrying a firearm.

    Nagy and Lodie are also charged as accessories in Talbot's murder.

    Both have pleaded not guilty during their arraignments in Chelsea District Court.

    Prosecutors say Talbot and three other police officers were drinking beer and socializing in the bleachers at the Revere High School athletic field when Lodie exchanged angry words with the officers.

    Prosecutors recount death of officer

    Three arraigned in Revere shooting

    Globe Staff / December 28, 2007

    The altercation that cost Revere Police Officer Daniel Talbot his life began when the off-duty officer made disparaging remarks to a teenager about the Bloods street gang. Moments later Talbot was shot to death by an alleged member of that group, according to Suffolk County prosecutors and court records.
    Prosecutors have readily acknowledged since the Sept. 29 fatal shooting of Talbot behind Revere High School that he got into a verbal disagreement with 17-year-old Derek Lodie. Talbot, three fellow officers and Talbot's fiancée went to the high school around 1:30 a.m. after going to a Revere restaurant and had a six pack of beer with them at the time, prosecutors have said.
    But during yesterday's arraignment of Lodie and two other defendants in Suffolk Superior Court - including the alleged shooter, Robert Iacoviello, Jr., 20 - prosecutors gave their most detailed account of what sparked Talbot's killing.
    Talbot, according to Suffolk Assistant District Attorney Edmond J. Zabin, made "disparaging remarks towards the individual [Lodie] and the Bloods street gang. Lodie apparently took exception."
    Zabin said Lodie, who has not been identified as a gang member, used his cellphone to summon Iacoviello, who was listed as a suspected Bloods gang member in Chelsea District Court records when Revere police searched his home and discovered a 9mm handgun in 2006.
    Lodie, according to Zabin, kept the verbal exchange going with Talbot. Zabin explained that Lodie lured the officer to a parking lot and closer to an armed Iacoviello. Prosecutors have said that Lodie and Talbot did not know each other and that the young people were not aware that Talbot and his group were off-duty police officers.
    "As Talbot approached Lodie, who was continuing to taunt and in the process draw Talbot towards the parking lot, Iacoviello ambushed him," Zabin wrote in court papers.
    Zabin said in court that Iacoviello fired two rounds and that Talbot, 30, drew his weapon. But the officer was struck in the head and killed before he could fire a shot, he said.
    But Peter Krupp, Iacoviello's lawyer, said the government has not provided a complete and accurate account of the final moments of Talbot's life.
    "There is a lot more to this case than meets the eye," said Krupp, who also said he is concerned that law enforcement might have destroyed or damaged audio and video tapes of witness interviews.
    Lodie's lawyer, JW Carney Jr., said his client looks forward to being vindicated during a jury trial, and refused to comment further.
    Also yesterday, James Heang,17, faces a charge of being an accessory after the fact of murder. Heang stored the gun used to kill Talbot in his Revere apartment, Zabin said.
    After the shooting, Heang burned a sweat shirt Iacoviello wore during the shooting and helped dismantle the weapon and drop pieces into storm drains in Revere, Zabin said.
    Heang's lawyer, Willie J. Davis, left without speaking to reporters.
    The fourth person charged in the case, Iacoviello's girlfriend, Gia Nagy, 17, is scheduled to be arraigned next month on a charge of being an accessory after the fact, according to Suffolk District Attorney Daniel F. Conley's office. Authorities said Nagy also allegedly helped take apart the weapon and drop pieces into storm drains, where State Police later recovered them.
    Several Revere officers and Talbot's relatives were in court when the three suspects were jointly arraigned, but they declined comment afterward.
    All three defendants pleaded not guilty and were ordered held without bail by Trial Magistrate Gary D. Wilson, who set a tentative trial date of Dec. 22, 2008.
    Under state law, Iacoviello faces life imprisonment without parole if convicted of first-degree murder as would Lodie if found guilty of being an accessory before murder. Heang and Nagy face up to seven years in prison.

    Paper demands release of tape related to officer’s shooting


    LYNN, Mass. - A Lynn paper has sued the Suffolk County District Attorney for refusing to release video related to the shooting death of a Revere police officer.
    Daniel Talbot was shot in the head while he socialized with other off-duty officers behind Revere High School last September. Robert Iacoviello is accused of shooting Talbot after Talbot and his friend exchanged words.
    Events leading to the shooting were filmed on a camera mounted on Revere High School.
    The Daily Item of Lynn requested the tape, but DA Daniel Conley said its release would jeopardize the investigation.
    The paper sued Friday, saying tape from a public camera of events on a public field is public record.
    Conley spokesman Jake Wark said the tape is evidence, not something that should be used to sell papers.

    Officer who witnessed fatal shooting faces dismissal

    By Associated Press
    Thursday, April 17, 2008

    REVERE - A Revere police officer faces dismissal for allegedly fleeing the scene and lying to investigators after witnessing the fatal shooting of a colleague.
    Revere’s mayor held a public hearing on Wednesday on the status of Sergeant Evan Franklin. Police Chief Terence Reardon has recommended that Franklin be fired.
    Franklin has been on paid administrative leave since the Sept. 29 shooting that left officer Daniel Talbot dead.
    Franklin, Talbot and two other officers were off duty at the time and had been drinking. Three men face charges in connection with Talbot’s death.
    Reardon alleges that Franklin fled the scene and lied to state police investigating.
    Mayor Thomas Ambrosino says he expects to decide Franklin’s fate by next week.
    Franklin’s lawyer is appealing the recommendation that he be fired.

    He also fled the scene of a car accident when he was in the academy which he then resigned from. He went two years later so apparently he has a history of fleeing things. He is a coward and he's throwing the rest of the guys under the bus. He wants his job back? Who the f&@!? wants to work with him???

    I stand corrected and retract my previous post. After hearing from someone who was involved in the investigation, I second all these comments. I hope he can't even look himself in the eye when he shaves his face in the morning.

    If this guy had to resign from an academy class because he fled the scene of an accident, why did he get another chance in another class??? Not enough good candidates in Revere? Thats insane!!

    I thought he was terminated while in the academy along with another Revere recruit? I had been told these two along with another recruit from a different department were involved in a hit and run in which they bailed out of the car in which a department firearm(not Revere) was left in the vehicle. I guess old habits die hard. An absolute shame, to leave a wounded brother behind. Be gone Evan Franklin. Be a man once in your life and resign. You don't deserve to be one of us. RIP Officer Daniel Talbot you will not be forgotten.

    From the West Coast, I am hopeful that the POS who initiated the incident and the others involved are properly and summarily tried and found guilty. The sad thing is they will be freaking heroes in prison.

    I have only the knowledge gleaned from reading this thread about the sergeant accused of abandoning a downed officer and lying about the facts. If those facts are true, he deserves the punitive actions being recommended. Should he succeed in his appeal, look for him to become a Lieutenant within a short time. I have seen that very thing happen within my career - it is not rare. He appears to be one of those who falls in a bucket of waste and comes out covered in gold. I am hopeful that justice prevails and the memory of the lost officer is not sullied any further by bringing a coward forward to the front of the media circus.

    RIP officer Talbot!

    I will play the devil's advocate....

    The guy is a cop and probably did his job when he needed to.

    He was drinking all night and headed towards the field with a woman not his wife. The shit hits the fan and he needs to get out of there.

    There is a major difference in working when you are on duty versus when you are off duty.

    The bottom line is that alcohol clouds the mind...

    Right, wrong, or indifferent, tell me that anyone of you never have been involved in choir practice.

    How do you know? I doubt it.

    You're not serious are you? I hope this is sarcasm I'm not picking up on. "Choir practice" is fine. I like to think if I was involved in my own choir practice and my brother was next to me and took one to the head and I was fortunate enough to be armed I'd do something (anything) about it. If the story is true this guy needs to be exposed for the coward he is. I could care less if he was screwing around behind his wifes back. Man up and lie to your wife if you want to continue being a rat to her but how the hell can you call yourself a man and run away?!?
     
  25. Delta784

    Delta784 Guest

    Choir practice? Sure.

    Running away from a dangerous situation? No.

    It's very rare indeed that what you do gets you fired. It's the attempted cover-up that sinks everyone.
